From Tuesday to Friday, AcadeCap students have the opportunity to participate in a hot meals programme catered by Cordon Bleu Chef Erick LePors of Dial-a-Chef. Every year, Chef Erick prepares and caters a superb internationally flavoured hot meal menu for our students.
Dial-a-Chef will take allergic sensitivities and religious-based requests into consideration.
At Académie de la Capitale, students have a formal uniform that they wear to school on Mondays, during school outings, and on other special occasions. In addition, students have a more casual uniform that they wear the rest of the week. Students are also required to wear a sports uniform for their Physical Education class. Académie de la Capitale school uniforms can be purchased from Land’s End with the school’s code through this link.
“We came to ACADECAP for French immersion summer camp eight years ago and never left. We chose ACADECAP for a variety of reasons, many of which are unique to this school. We like that activities like water-polo, Jiu-Jitsu and violin are simply part of our four children’s school day, leaving evenings and weekends for family time. Other activities our kids enjoy which would be otherwise very difficult to incorporate into our family calendar include skating, skiing, snowboarding, art, Mindstorm Robotics, chess, and dance.
The small class sizes allow for a more individualized approach. Students who are years ahead in certain subjects can remain with their age group and still be provided with advanced material to work on. The hot lunch program offered by Dial-a-chef through the school is amazing and demonstrates yet another aspect of the school’s holistic approach. The kids obviously love the school and often need to be convinced to come home each afternoon.”
“We discovered Academie de la Capitale when our oldest son was just finishing junior kindergarten. He was attending a wonderful, caring nursery school that felt like a second home to him. We were looking for a school offering strong academics and French in a similar nurturing environment. We attended an Acadecap open house, were very impressed, and signed him up. That was almost five years ago. Now, our three oldest children happily attend, with our two youngest soon to follow.
There are so many things we love about Academie de la Capitale. The academics are solid. The IB primary years program ensures a balanced approach to learning. Students are offered many extras they would not find elsewhere, such as coding (even at the kindergarten level) and STEM. Activities such as Jiu Jitsu, violin, and art are incorporated into the daily curriculum. Students become proficient in English and French, but also study a third language (Spanish or Mandarin). Acadecap staff are outstanding. The teachers are engaging, and genuinely care about their students. Students are offered the option of participating in a variety of afterschool activities (which have included Minecraft, Lego Mindstorms, math skills, ballet, chess, and band). A delicious, nutritious, hot lunch from DialaChef is also on offer.
However, of all the reasons for choosing Acadecap, the school environment is what keeps us coming back, year after year. Students of all ages and grade levels are friendly with, and look out, for one another. Everyone treats each other with respect, regardless of age or ability. The dynamic within the school is like that of one big family. Our children feel so comfortable there that they often don’t want to leave at the end of the day. Once, when given the option of missing school for a family activity, they chose to go instead!
We are so pleased to have our children attend Academie de la Capitale, and highly recommend it to any parent looking for a superior education for their child.”
“We were so pleased with Acadecamp’s science camps this summer. Our son loves science, and particularly enjoys experiments and interacting with projects to learn about things. Acadecamp was a perfect fit! It was so great to hear him come home telling us how much fun he had during the day – and also proudly explain new science concepts that he learned as well! The counsellors had interesting ways to engage young minds in new ways each day. On top of the experiments, there was plenty of exercise and activity to keep them busy. Our son has even made a new friendship that will continue on outside of summer camp. Can’t ask for much more than that!”
At Académie de la Capitale (AcadeCap), we believe that education needs to be grounded in evidenced practice, while nonetheless accounting for forward thinking and change.
The first thing you’re likely to notice when stepping into our locale is the newly designed and well-equipped STEM Maker Lab. Then, as you reach the second level, you will see the open-concept layout, along with an impressive array of student work, both framed and in progress, covering almost all available wall space. Designed to foster interaction between students of different ages, grades, and abilities, AcadeCap functions like a creative, cutting-edge work hub with focus and collaborate spaces, rather than the traditional amalgam of distinct classrooms. Correspondingly, students aren’t arranged with the notion of static classrooms in mind, but grouped into small, focused workgroups which emphasize collaborative skill sets, participation, and teacher interaction, in tandem with the integration of our rigorous syllabus.
To structure the AcadeCap syllabus at the elementary, we’ve combined the age-banded stages of the Ontario Ministry of Education, with the developmental phases of the International Baccalaureate (IB©) Primary Years and Middle Years Programmes. This combination takes any preconceived limitations away from the scope and depth of students’ learning. The result is a constantly motivated and challenged student body. It’s an approach that requires not only teachers, but also specialists and ultimately mentors, to function.
At the secondary level, the Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD) Grade 9 and Grade 10 overlap with Year 4 and Year 5 of the IB MYP. In Grades 11 and 12, our students continue on with the OSSD curriculum recognized by universities around the world. Our students are prepped with extensive knowledge, and various skill sets, including well-developed higher order thinking skills, to achieve academic success and admission to post-secondary programmes of choice.
Our teachers are not only selected for both their professionalism and experience, but also for their drive to learn and to share their passion. They are often specialists, having masters and doctorate degrees, in the subject they teach. And most importantly, it is what their students can do with what they know that make AcadeCap teachers, such remarkable teachers. They empower our students.
As such, the AcadeCap student is unlike any other. He or she not only develops the ability to think and to question critically, ethically, and divergently, but also the ability to create, design and build. It is our aim to develop academically successful students, who also have the gumption to take risks, to innovate, and to tackle the unknown: a courage born of experience acquired from being challenged, creating and succeeding at AcadeCap.
